Reviewer: Mind Wondrin - favoritefavorite - December 2, 2016
Subject: Surrounded by more famous shows

Start of a 5-day run at Meadowlands, following the famed (and better) Warlocks/Hampton show.

First Set. Lots of flubs/rough playing - close to a train wreck on Bertha. And not just Jerry - Bobby has no voice for Greatest Story; a bad sign at the start of a 5-day run (though they did lay down the well-regarded 16th at the end). Jer loses the thread again on Loser but the solo is good. Oddly (i.e. typically for this band!), Masterpiece is a classic version. Jer does something cool and Bobby's shout-mood, this night, fits. Althea has Bobby attempting to play slide and Cassidy is wreckage. Brent is likewise not his best on A Little Light - though he's the only one playing right on a flubbed Dough Knees.

Second Set. The set starts at its best (notwithstanding the encore) with a China>Rider that's a little unique (albeit slight, unenthused) and then slides downhill. Bobby just monotones through Estimated, saving up, likely. Terrapin is trainwreck city: flat, with missed cues. Drums and Space are a respite before one big struggle of a Wheel. The rest is average, though it does seem great in comparison, and the set is stretched to 1:45 to make amends. A good Baby Blue leaves 'em happy.

1st Set:  D+
2nd Set: D
Overall = 1½ (1-star show plus ½ for Masterpiece)

Highlights:
When I Paint My Masterpiece - perhaps the year's best

RUN:
12th   1¼ stars [D-, D+]
13th   Letterman
14th   2 stars [C+, D]
15th   3 stars [C+, B-]
16th   3½ stars [B+, C]

SOURCES. The miller.83292 sounds best (the balance is easily corrected on the second set) but there's also a hansokolow matrix using it, that has the energy. Masterpiece is on Postcards from the Hanging.

another gem from the deads best tour on a sad footnote longtime deadhead adam katz was beat to death by most likely an off duty police officer acting as security for brendan byrne arena killers were never caught but god bless charlie miller evrything he touches turns to gold

Missed this one but caught 10/16.This whole tour is really good.This one may have be over shadowed by Hampton and 10/16 ,but is definately worth a listen ...Great sound !!!Sounds like they took their time and delivered a goods show !!

Subject: A Friday with the Dead
Another Friday at the office, and what a great way to welcome the weekend that with a great 1989 Dead show to listen to. The band really does a good job with this performance. The sound quality is perfect. Definitly worth listening to if you want to make the morning breeze by or if you're just in the mood for a excellent late 80's show!!!
